The Washington Redskins broke a 24-year streak when selecting Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

Until Haskins, no Big Ten quarterback had been chosen in the first round of the draft since Penn State’s Kerry Collins went No. 5 to the Carolina Panthers in the 1995 NFL draft.


In that stretch, quarterbacks from FCS schools like Carson Wentz (North Dakota State) and Joe Flacco (Delaware) were taken in the first round. Teams like the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars each took three first-round quarterbacks. None of them were from the Big Ten.

Here are all the 61 quarterbacks who were selected between Collins and Haskins. It’s a lengthy list full of guys who had Hall-of-Fame careers, some who became competent pros, some who had below-average careers and some whose names you may have completely forgotten.
